Barracuda SSL VPN

Why does my Barracuda SSL VPN take a long time to boot for the first time?

Applies to Barracuda SSL VPN.



When you boot your Barracuda SSL VPN the first time, it may take more than 30 minutes before you can see the console.


This is because the anti-virus, security, and application definition files are not up to date. Therefore, the system will download and install them. As these can be quite large and a couple of restarts of the SSL VPN service are required, this can take 30 minutes or more.


You can check on the status of any definition updates after you setup the appliance configuration. Navigate to Advanced > Energize Updates. You may set preferences for automatic update of all definitions here (and you can manually update them if required).
